Content
The image features the silhouette of a couple in a picturesque beach landscape while the sun is setting where the light passes through the gap aligns with the spectator’s eye level and horizon line.

Colour Analysis
The late sunset light contains full-strength colours (hue) and highest valued colour (sun) that sets the intended mood. The light source is positioned between the upper body that creates a focal point on the face and reflection of sunlight on sea water, the transition of low-value to high-value colour also act as focaliser.

Spatial Organisation
The light source is positioned in the gap between the couple to highlight the silhouette as the focus. The image also utilise the alignment of clouds and rocks to create perspective lines that direct attention to the focal point.

Expressive content
The silhouette the intimate couple contrast with the visual noise in the texture of the cloud and water surface creates a strong expression of love that withstands the surrounding changes and test of time.

Content
This still image features a man standing in the landscape looking down. Both the man and the landscape are represented as a silhouette against the light grey background.

Colour Analysis
The transition from low to high valued colour towards the dark silhouette draws the viewer’s attention to subject. The image is edited as monochrome to create a strong contrast under the same tone with emphasis on stillness and simplicity.

Spatial Organisation
2/3 of the image is composed of the plain sky to represent emptiness and loneliness of the subject.

Expressive content
The image features a single man looking down and clean line of the landscape with minimal background in the sky creates a sense of sadness and loneliness. The body posture becomes an important element here for the expression of mood.

This series of images were from a family movie called “up”. It contains lots of hidden meanings such as “letting go of the past and embracing the moment and enjoy”. The chosen scenes show the main character misses his wife who passed away.

Long camera shot that enlarge the scale of the surrounding shows a sense of emptiness and loneliness. The pink/bluish tone in the first two images creates the sense of love with sorrow. Vanishing point and focal point directs viewers’ attention toward the centre of the image, but the positioning of the person is offset to the centre, producing an illusion of something is missing to make the focal point completed.

The centered one-point perspective of the room in the first image acts as a focaliser that draws attention towards the focal point. They were kept consistent throughtout the images minimise distraction and create stillness. The consistency of the character’s position and dissolving effect for scene transition are used to keep emotional bonding across different scenes.
